Chocolate therapy

I loved the Zen Den (kid mindfulness YouTube videos) that the kids and I did before bed last night -- Taste Test.

We each took a small piece of chocolate and savored it. First, we looked at it, noticing all the little details. Then smelled it. Then put it in our mouth and finally chewed.

The whole exercise took around four minutes. Even though the piece was tiny (we’re talking under 20 calories), the ritual made me enjoy it more than if I had eaten a whole bar. The aftertaste even lasted longer.

So next time, you want a bit of chocolate therapy, pop on this video and go for it. Trust me, it will make it that much sweeter. #mindfulness #familytime
